    I had this idea and not sure if its possible, maybe someone here in tacoland thats played with lights can chime in. On the TRD Sport fake hood scoop, does anyone make an off road light assembly that could fit in the scoop and work as an OR light? All the ones I have seen are too tall to fit without making a higher custom scoop body. Far fetched probably, but the idea has been bugging me.

    Is the amount of light worth it? and do you get a lot of glare back off the hood at you? Im sure it would be easy to make a nice bracket, I think theres four screw mounts for the faux scoop. I have a buddy with a mill and would make one for me if I come up with a design, just have to find something that would fill the hole enough. Thanks for the links you guys.

    I forget who but I just saw that some companies make a mount for the gen 2, maybe they'll produce something for the gen 3 soon.
